I'm already beginning to see how this whole blog thing can become a problem. I literally have been on the computer all day. Thank goodness I have a sweet baby who loves to play in his bouncy seat, exersaucer, and especially his jump and go! I must say that we have been blessed with an excellent baby! I know, I know everyone has already told me to beware of the "second child"! I'm now terrified to have another one because Tripp has been such a great baby. I have several family members who can verify that, well let's just say, every baby has their own personality.
Tripp is 6 months old and growing so fast. He laughs out loud all the time now, and he's so happy. He's sitting on his own, but still needs a little help to stay up for an extended amount of time. He sleeps from 7pm until usually 7:30am and an occasional 8am. He's been sleeping through the night for a long time (since 2mo. old)...apparently this is not normal...so I hear. I will have to say, and I know there are a lot of you out there who disagree, but the book Babywise was the best book I ever read! Don' hate! I know what some of you are thinking, but you have to read this book with an open mind and take from it what is practical for you and your baby. I have 4 sister-in-laws and 16 plus one on the way nieces and nephews and they all used and highly recommended this book. AND, drum roll please....all 16 of them slept through the night at a very early age. Some of you don't like the whole" let them learn to fall asleep on their own thing", but it took Tripp one night of crying for 45 minutes to understand that he was okay and could fall back to sleep without Mommy or Daddy. Some babies take longer. Remember....to each his own!!!!
I'm sure there are lots of good books and other methods of parenting, but this one works for us. We love our little guy and can't wait to add to our family.
